Support for Little League organizations fluctuate from league to league. The urban areas have many more resources to draw from, the rural areas, not so much. The Brandon Champion Foundation is glad to support El Molino Little League with a gift of $5000 to support their registration scholarships.
Sebastopol Little League Donation
Coach Brandon - The coach they all loved.
Brandon played in Sebastopol Little League from T-Ball through Senior League. From Ragle Park, Park Side, Ives Park, Clahan Field and Analy High School, Brandon played on every field Sebastopol had to offer. It is only fitting that his hometown league, a league that taught him the game he so loved, be the first recipient of funds from Brandon's foundation. On behalf of Brandon, The Brandon Champion Foundation has donated $5,000 to Sebastopol Little League. The funds will be used as registration scholarships allowing every child that wishes to play Little League baseball in Sebastopol the opportunity to do so.

John is a single father of three children. In November of 2021, John was struck by a car while walking in Petaluma. He suffered many injuries, including the loss of both his legs. He’s endured several surgeries and has more to go. We’re hoping he’ll be fitted for prosthetics within the next several months. He’s recovering from other associated injuries and has a long road ahead. One of our board members spoke with John - he’s in good spirits and says he’s ready and up to the challenge to be rehabilitated. His injuries are very similar to Brandon’s and his story really touched us. In addition John is a Army Veteran who served multiple tours overseas. We’re so pleased to extend the gift of $5,000 to help John out while he transitions back to his life.

Brandon cut his teeth coaching for Westside Little League. In fact, many of the kids he coached are still playing in the Westside league, all with fond memories of their Coach Brandon. Brandon was a firm believer that every child should have the opportunity to play youth sports. Westside Little League does a phenomenal job embracing this belief. Unfortunately, so much of their budget is spent supporting registration scholarships that other league projects can get pushed back. On behalf of Brandon Champion, The Brandon Champion Foundation has donated $5,000 to Westside Little League to off-set their registration scholarship costs.

The Cloverdale Wrestling Club approached the foundation to provide financial help with the cost of renting their wrestling facility for the year. Though this request is not really the main focus of the foundation, it involved youth sports. We know without a doubt, that given the ability, Brandon would be one of the first to help these kids out. So we did.
